Headless Client for Kids

Postby oliver » Sun Apr 19, 2015 7:46 pm

Hello,

I plan to create an internet phone for kids based on raspberry pi. The called partys are preconfigured and should be dialed by pushing hardware buttons (based on raspis GPIO interface). The child should only press the buttons. Everything else will happen automatically.

Would something possible with mumble? Is there maybe a command line client for linux?

Sorry I have not yet dealt with mumble. Maybe you can push me in the right direction.

Thank you for your attention.

You should take a look at barnard, a Go based cli Mumble client.

See https://github.com/layeh/barnard.

Another (bad) solution would be to run the normal Mumble client within an virtual framebuffer (xvfb), see here (in German, but copy & paste should work).

I created a simple howto in German some time ago (try this with google translate); just use sudo apt-get install ... for the packages instead of pacman; maybe it works. See here. There is also a description how to create a client certificate.
